Technology is fleeting. I hope to make art that has permanence. I would love to find balance between work that is intelligent and approachable. A mountain of problems could be hurdled if people felt compassion through connection. I think of painting as an actor developing a character. As I paint, I feel deeply connected to my subject.
I make figurative oil paintings and drawings from photos that I take or that are provided.
Currently, and for the next 4 to 8 years, I am watching Washington and will act when I find a need and a method. Along with millions of women and men around the world, in November 2017, I suddenly became an activist. With great friends and family I was a passionate part of history with hundreds of thousands at the Women’s March In DC January 2017. The ridiculous people who’ve invaded the whitehouse are not my muse but certainly an inspiration.
We must not be clouded or muddied by fury or frustration. There is so much beauty coming out of the woodwork to balance the ugliness.
I am behind with updates. I am grateful to add to this list soon.
